Summary:
There is accumulating evidence that “partial breast brachytherapy” (a kind of radiation treatment that is given using tiny radioactive seeds or pellets) is safe and effective in treating certain types of early stage breast cancer.  While the standard treatment for women with a local recurrence after breast cancer treated with lumpectomy and radiation therapy is mastectomy, our breast cancer trial aims to assess the outcomes of treating a local recurrence in these patients with a second chance at breast conservation using lumpectomy and brachytherapy.

Eligibility and Treatment Plan:
Eligibility is limited to women who have had either a local breast cancer recurrence after previously undergoing a woman who had previously received radiation therapy.  Please call for more information.


Benefits and/or Compensation:
There is no monetary compensation for this study.  The information gathered from this study may be beneficial to future patients.
